Method

  1. Firstly make sure you have a sharp enough knife to cut through the aubergine, courgette and peppers.
  2. Slice the vegetables into thin pieces. This means when they are on the grill they take less time and it also means they will be crispier!
  3. Plate up your asparagus and cherry tomatoes ready to go on the grill with the others.
  4. When on the grill, pick your homegrown mint and finely chop it so that it can be sprinkled over the top.
  5. Carefully, take off the vegetables from the grill and place them on a fresh chopping board.
  6. Season with some salt and pepper and if you have it try to use flakey sea salt.
  7. Lightly drizzle some olive oil.
  8. Sprinkle your mint on top.
  9. Squeeze the lime to drizzle some lime juice over the top.
  10. Dish out as you choose and enjoy!
